    This is the first in a new series of Hungry Goddess Edible Podcasts!  More on The Hungry Goddess


    About Jenni Field:


    First and foremost, I am a teacher. I left the formal education field
    after 16 years teaching Special Education to attend culinary school
    at Orlando Culinary Academy, a Le Cordon Bleu program, and
    eventually become a pastry chef. I worked my way up from pastry
    cook to pastry sous chef and pastry chef and had the privilege of helping
    to open an upscale gastropub and set the dessert menu as well as
    our signature bread service and bar snacks.


    While I enjoyed working in the restaurant business, the teacher in me
    missed teaching, so I left food service to pursue a career in blogging,
    food writing and recipe development. My background in education
    allows me to teach fundamentals and bedrock technique while
    maintaining an engaging tone.


    I take great pride in hearing from many readers who say “Thank you!
    Now I understand!”


    I live just south of Raleigh, NC with my wonderful husband (The Beloved), our five cats and the occasional foster kitten or two.

    CHEF ELLIOTT'S ENTERTAINMENT SOLUTIONS

    in Entertainment

    This week, Chef Elliott has the distinct honor of highlighting the culinary and sweet genius of the ”Award-Winning Pastry Chef To The Stars," THE "Suga Chef," Pastry Chef Padua Player! Chef Padua grew up cooking with his mom in the District of Columbia.  One of the first dishes Chef Padua created was a recipe taken from the kids section in a local DC newspaper. Any opportunity that arose for the budding pastry chef to help his mom in creating a family dish, he was front and center to soak in her culinary teachings. This contributed to his creative juices and he began to fashion up his own recipes for tasty quick bread mixes and assorted fruit cobblers. Chef Padua honed his skills and worked his way up the foodie ranks to plating desserts, which lead to him assisting the pastry chef two days a week. He moved on to his first baking stint and credits Pastry Chef, Susan McCreight Lindeborg as his mentor, picking up from where his mother had laid the culinary groundwork.

    Chef Padua attended Baltimore International College, worked in the bakery at Marriott in  Georgetown University and went on to work at some of DC’s top catering houses and restaurants such as DC Coast, Café Milano, Notte Luna and Ceiba. He was reviewed by the famed DC food critic Phyllis Richman, who gave him, thumbs up on his desserts and received an official letter from Vice President Biden.


    Chef Padua has appeared on the television show, Platinum Weddings, has been a contestant on Food Network’s Sweet Genius and also provided his pastry services for the late Chuck Brown, singer Macy Gray, comedian Bill Bellamy, actress Pam Grier, comedian Damon Wayans, and singer Crystal Waters.
